Mexico result reassures Sordo

Dani SordoCitroen number two Dani Sordo says that fourth place in last weekend's Rally Mexico has restored his confidence after a difficult month.

The Spaniard began the year with a strong second place behind teammate Sebastien Loeb in Monte Carlo, but Sordo then crashed in both Sweden and Norway.

In Mexico he ran in the top five throughout, and pushed Mikko Hirvonen hard for third place before settling for fourth on the final day. Given his relative inexperience on gravel, Sordo was very satisfied with this result.

"I still need to progress, but I feel I have improved on dirt," he said. "I am closer to the others and at times I was up there with the best of them. I feel more and more comfortable with the C4 and I also feel reassured about my ability."

Team boss Guy Frequelin admitted that Sordo needed to produce a performance like his Rally Mexico drive to restore his reputation after his recent errors.

"I want to underline Dani's good run," said Frequelin at the end of the rally.

"He has reassured me about his potential and his ability to go quickly without making any mistakes."
